Or does it?
Sometimes, when transfer windows are open, you stumble across a piece of speculation that either makes your jaw drop or smile in disbelief.
Today, I’ve stumbled across something that falls into the latter category.
Lurking in the pages of the news vehicle, the Express, is the insinuation that Manchester United have a desire to sign the Uruguayan defender Diego Godin.
Godin is currently on the books of the La Liga side, Atletico Madrid and our quoted source suggests that their manager, Diego Simeone, is doing his utmost to get the defender to sign a deal that will keep him in Spain.
Now, whilst I acknowledge that Manchester United need to add a world-class centre-back to the squad, something Jose Mourinho continually spoke about, are we really expected to believe that Manchester United are prepared to move heaven and earth to bring a 32-year-old to the club?
Or have I gauged this one completely wrong?
